Abstract

The article presents an account of the introduction of a counselling service into a National Health Service general practice. It examines the experiences of the counsellor and locates these within a theoretical context that draws upon the insights of feminism to examine the work done and the context within which it was done and the literature of the therapeutic community to offer a guide to practice. Further, it examines the impact upon the organization of the practice and the problems in creating an inter-occupational relationship. These problems emanate both from the assumptions general practice operates within and from the external system of accountability to which it conforms.
